Need for reprimand (Thought for the day)

I grew up under my father's control from the day I remembered until my first job. My father would get angry at me many times. He was strict and punished me. Then I scolded him so many times in the mouth, and cursed him. During the school age, I used to sit nearby while he ate even after I filled my stomach. The one who ate on half stomach deliberately put the rest of the food on the plate for me and get up. He worked for the family even in his physical ailments until old age i.e. until he died. He was the only person I know who voluntarily accepted the work of others in the office and carried it on his head.  He had been a good guide for honesty and sacrifice not only for me but also for my family and all those around him.

Truly, Father and  Mother are the greatest gift the Lord has given us. It was only later that I realized that the more love and right a father has for his child, the more he will rebuke that child.

In this way, God will reprimand and correct those whom He has greater love and authority over. This is a fact I have witnessed in all my life. Do not think that God should not rebuke or punish.

Today many are even afraid to reprimand their children. They immediately buy what they want. They raise children like themselves in luxury and impose their involvement on wealth. Children grow with half knowledge in study and become lethargic at work. So the idea of earning in any way is growing. Social evils occur.  Parents who do not reprimand or punish their children for their mistakes and indiscipline,  are responsible for their future blunders. They refuse to show their children the hardships of themselves or others. Children who grow up like this will take any failure in negative sense.

"Apply your mind to instructions and your ear to words of knowledge.Do not withhold discipline from your children. If you beat them with a rod, they will not die. If you beat them with a rod, you will save their lives from Sheol (Abyss / Darkness) . (Proverbs 23:12-14)
